With entertaining and vintage charm in mind, Lily Kanter—co-founder of Serena & Lily—shares the end result after lovingly remodeling her 19th-century California home in the July/August issue of Coastal Living. She complemented the home’s original craftsmanship with a few beautiful Maine Cottage® painted wood and upholstered furniture pieces.

Artichoke Lamp by Stray Dog Designs at Maine Cottage
Did you know: artichokes grow only along California, Chilean and Mediterranean coasts? And that they are giant thistle buds? Horticulturally, that struck us as a juicy bit of trivia. Anyway, an artichoke is best known as a garden fresh treat. Round and prickly, richly bright green leaves reveal its deeply sweet ripeness. Our friends at Stray Dog Designs created a striking Artichoke Lamp in this unique vegetable’s honor.

Like many things from Stray Dog Designs, the Artichoke Lamp was designed in the USA and is made using recycled materials by artisans in Haiti. A painted paper shade and sparkling glass finial give the lamp added artful appeal. Not to mention great color and fun! To appreciate the generous scale of these table lamps, we’ve included an image (below) from one of our stores. At 32″ high they have presence and personality, especially in a pair. And they look fantastic with colorful Maine Cottage furnishings.

Is the word “hammock” enough to bring a smile to your face? A sense of peace and relaxation? It’s an iconic image of SUMMER. Free floating, suspended midair without a worry in the world. Bare feet. Soaking up the sun or keeping cool in the shade of trees. Hammock is synonymous with simplicity. Siesta. Easy living. Fun.

Maine Cottage Maine Cottage

Hence the name Hammock for these Maine Cottage fabrics. Textural, cool and relaxed, Hammock fabrics are constructed for carefree indoor and outdoor use. Hammock’s a hardy synthetic fabric with a relaxed feeling (or “hand”) and protected by spill and stain-resistant Nano-tex. Easy to care for and easy to live with – in beautiful Maine Cottage colors. How’s that for simplicity?
